Fire without a tripod
* Note: Probably just a temporary photo posting
Not sure what to say about this picture, it didn't come out near as good
as I had wished. I was driving down I-81 near the 146 exit to Roanoke when
I saw these flames burning down along the side of the mountain. The police
and fire departments had the roads closed, of course, and getting a good
view for a camera was pretty tough. My biggest concern taking a photo was
the darkness of the background along with the brightness of the flames.
That would normally require a tripod, and of course, this particular time,
I didn't have it with me. Even the smallest movement of the camera was
going to cause blur, due to the amount of time the shutter had to stay
open. I guess it's time to make a permanent place in the truck for the
tripod to be stored.
